Invariant connections and PBW theorem for Lie groupoid pairs

Camille Laurent-Gengoux and Yannick Voglaire

Vol. 303 (2019), No. 2, 605–667

Given a closed wide Lie subgroupoid A of a Lie groupoid L, i.e., a Lie groupoid pair, we interpret the associated Atiyah class as the obstruction to the existence of L-invariant fibrewise affine connections on the homogeneous space LA. For Lie groupoid pairs with vanishing Atiyah class, we show that the left A-action on the quotient space LA can be linearized.

In addition to giving an alternative proof of a result of Calaque about the Poincaré–Birkhoff–Witt map for Lie algebroid pairs with vanishing Atiyah class, this result specializes to a necessary and sufficient condition for the linearization of dressing actions, and gives a clear interpretation of the Molino class as an obstruction to simultaneous linearization of all the monodromies.

We also develop a general theory of connections on Lie groupoid equivariant principal bundles.
